Re-deltify in 1.2.0

I recently installed 1.1.4 of svn and am loving it, only to find out that 1.2.0 was just released! In the release notes it says that the repository is now using the xdelta differencing algorithm (instead of vdelta). It mentions "Note: There's a small trade off between speed and disk space. If you choose to re-deltify your whole repository using xdelta, its size will grow by roughly 10 to 15 percent." How do I "re-deltify" the repository? Do I have to export/backup the repository from 1.1.4 and them import it back into 1.2.0? Or is there a conversion utility? Thanks for your help.
